Re: a2ps download site

Hi Igor,

Thanks for the feedback on this. It turns out my build script was messed up
and I uploaded a bad source package. I fixed it and uploaded the fixed
packages at.

Once all the kinks of the packages have been worked out, what are the next
steps to get the package into the distribution?

Oops, forgot to address the "configure" comment:

I never said you shouldn't include it, I just commented on the fact that
there was one in the original distribution (and that, consequently, you
should do whatever is normally done in that case).

I was more concerned about files like "Makefile", which *aren't* present
in the original distribution, but are in your patch.
